Recap this year's Voice UK finalists below...

Leah McFall
Unique Leah McFall is a woman not afraid of taking risks. Confident that she wanted to pursue a career in music but knowing she still wanted to get a degree and move to London, she thought fashion would be a good place to start.

Cleo Higgins
Cleo Higgins was the lead singer of Cleopatra - the 90’s pop group made up of three sisters from Manchester. Signed to Madonna’s label Maverick when she was just 13, Cleopatra had three top ten hits, supported the Spice Girls, had two TV series and performed concerts at the Vatican!

Leanne Jarvis
2012 was a difficult year for former Girls Aloud tribute singer Leanne - she lost her home and left her job all in the space of a week. In her words it was “not ideal!” But her burning desire to make it in the music industry has always kept her going, constantly trying so hard to get a break.

[tag]Team Jessie[/tag]
Ash Morgan
Given a fast pass through the knockouts by Jessie, Ash was brought up in South Wales, just 4 miles away from where Sir Tom Jones was born - there must be something in the water! He has a small, tight-knit family who says he was singing before he could even talk.

Sarah Cassidy
Scottish beauty Sarah has been a Miss Scotland finalist, in a girl band and a hip-hop group but now she’s ready to go solo – good job she’s got the top female solo artist in the UK to help her.

Matt Henry
Will.i.am look-a-like Matt Henry was stolen by Jessie in the battles. Brummie Matt splits his time between performing in West End productions and working with young offenders as a dog trainer.

Alys Williams
Stay at home mum Alys comes from a very musical family so she shocked the nation when she didn’t make it through the Blind Auditions last year. This time around the Welsh singer had all four of the panel vying for her to join their teams, but Sir Tom won.

Joseph Apostol
Originally from the Philippines, Joseph moved to the UK when he was 10 years old. He describes himself as a bit of a joker and says his mum has always been his biggest fan. He dreams of getting signed, making music and touring the world.

Mike Ward
Mike is your typical streetwise Salford boy who likes fishing, football and going to the gym...and he’s got an amazing country voice. Shy Mike only started singing karaoke and in his bedroom two years ago.

[tag]Team Danny[/tag]
Mitchell Emms
Rocker Mitchel Emms is a self taught singer and multi instrumentalist, able to play guitar, bass, drums and piano. With his dad as his own personal roadie Mitchel has played gigs up and down the country and headlined a festival in Turkey playing to over 3,000 people!

Karl Michael
Having had two record contracts and recorded vocals on a Bruno Mars track, you may think that Karl Michael has already made it. But after being dropped by his record label, Karl now lives in a bedsit with a communal bathroom and earns his cash as a barman and window cleaner. Will The Voice prove third time lucky for him?

Andrea Begley
Andrea started losing her sight at 6 years old and now only has 10% residual vision but she’s never let that stop her. She's studying a Masters Degree in Law, learning the guitar, gigging around Belfast and now wowing The Voice coaches with her angelic vocals.

The Voice UK 2013 live shows start on Friday from 7PM on BBC One.
